What is an annuity?

Annuities are financial products where funds are invested during an accumulation phase with the intention of paying out a fixed stream of income during the annuitization or distribution phase at a later time. Income annuity is good for ensuring a steady cash flow during retirement by distributing funds in periodic payments or a large lump sum.

Boost your retirement savings with the benefits of annuity income

Annuity options allow you to choose the product that best fits your financial plan, goals and needs.


Fixed annuity

A fixed annuity provides a periodic payment with a guaranteed interest rate on the contributions made during the accumulation phase. It offers competitive rates and terms starting at three years.


Variable annuity

A variable annuity offers the possibility of higher returns based on how the portfolio of sub accounts chosen by the annuity owner performs. A variable annuity may also hold higher volatility to consider.


Short-term annuity

Also known as an immediate annuity, it pays the annuity owner a guaranteed income almost immediately on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.


Long-term annuity

A long-term or deferred annuity is designed to help pay long-time care costs without using other retirement savings assets.
